In the royal academy summer exhibition for another year

Really pleased that the Royal Academy has again accepted one of my paintings for The Summer Exhibition. And I am happy to say it has sold before the opening.

This allotment by the sea may seem fantasy though the site is not entirely fictitious. It is based on my mum’s allotment in Portsmouth which is located right on the beach front. A lovely spot though rumour has it developers are poised to snap it up for luxury housing. This ‘rumour’ is the basic siege rumour of all allotments in England so a pinch of (salty sea) salt can be taken with that… I hope!

You can find more details about the painting in a previous  Blog.
